CURIOUS GEORGE AND THE BIRTHDAY SURPRISE is a sweet, funny story full of things kids love: party decorations, presents, and a beautiful birthday cake. Children will have fun playing along with George's clueless-enough-to-be-funny detective work. As always, the charming illustrations and George's crazy-but-innocent antics bring a lot of fun and laughs.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
